Jon's Got Rhythm

May 17 at Tampa Bay Devil Rays


How was the trophy defended today?
Cluch hitting backs Garland's fine outing!

Short Take:  Jon Garland had a strong outing tonight while the Sox bats were able to hit up the Devil Rays' bullpen.

The White Sox once again were able to smack around the Devil Rays' bullpen. This time making it count for a 5-2 win to back a fine outing by Jon Garland giving him his third win of the season.

Coming into tonight's game the White Sox were 17-16 at Tropicana Field, not a good record against a team that has never finished above .500 in their history. But, the Rays were always a team that would battle with you, and the Sox have had their work cut out for them the past two night's against the Rays' young starting pitching.

Seth McClung got the start tonight for the D-Rays and was able to keep Sox hitters in check. Garland was doing the same but gave up two solo shots to Greg Norton and Johnny Gomes in the second and fourth innings to put the Sox in a early hole.

Our boys were up for a comeback tonight... Jermaine Dye put the South Siders on the board with his own solo shot in the fifth to make it 2-1 Devil Rays. Dye then tied the game with the bases loaded on a sac fly to shallow center field. Scott Podsednik tested the arm of center fielder Joey Gathright and won scoring the trying run.

The Sox broke through in the eighth when facing the bullpen. Again, Jermaine Dye would provide the RBI. With runners on first and second with two outs and on a full count, Dye got a pitch that he drove for an RBI single to put the Sox up 3-2. The final blow came off the bat of A.J. Pierzynski. A.J. hit a fly ball over the head of Johnny Gomes that scored two on the RBI double to give the Sox a 5-2 lead.

The ninth may have had some Sox fans grasping their antiacid though. Neal Cotts, who pitched a fine eighth, started the ninth and walked Aubrey Huff on four pitches. Ozzie then thought it was time to bring in the closer Bobby Jenks. Big Bobby was able to get a quick two outs but walked Travis Lee to bring the tying run to the plate in Toby Hall. But, there were no meltdowns tonight. Hall struck out to end the game!

The 5-2 win gives the Sox a 26-13 record on the young 2006 season. Jon Garland picks up his third win of the season and Bobby Jenks gets his 12th save. Tomorrow, Javier Vazquez will close out this series and seven game dome tour against Mark Hendrickson. Game time is at 6:15pm and the game can be seen on Comcast SportsNet and ESPN2 nationally.

Ozzieball Update:
  Caught stealing three times and a horrible bunt by Podsednik didn't hurt us tonight.
